Welcome to the first Weekend Challenge post!
The Weekend Challenge will consist of three parts (with an optional fourth):
Part One: Identify the challenge area you will focus on. Each week will cover a different area of life or topic, but can be applied in different ways.
Part Two: Plan & Prepare. When and how will you complete the challenge? Most challenges will take only 15 to 30 minutes and are meant to be completed on Saturday (or whatever day you consider to be your “Saturday”), but some will take longer than others. Once in awhile, the challenge will also involve prep time, so make sure you plan for that as well!
Part Three: Execute! Complete the challenge!
(Optional) Part Four: Share! Share your victories on our Facebook page! Or, if you prefer, share with your friends on Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #veryhappywellchallenges.
Are you ready for your first weekend challenge?
This week’s Weekend Challenge has to do with Time Suckers.
What you will need: Yourself, a piece of paper, and something to write with.
What to do:
- Find a place – preferably a place where you won’t be interrupted – and set a timer for 15 minutes. Think about the things that suck up your time, but don’t add value to it. What are they? List as many as you can.Then, choose three time suckers you can start tackling right now. Mark them with a check mark or by circling, starring, or whatever you prefer.
- Create a brief plan of action. Note how you plan to tackle these time suckers, what limits you will place, and how you will check your progress.
- Start right away!
- Share! The best accountability is to tell someone – tell your husband, a friend, or if you really want to be held accountable, your children. Tell your Facebook page. Comment below, or use the contact form. Just tell someone!
Congratulations! You just finished your first Weekend Challenge. How was it? Feel free to comment below!
